How Chemical Peels Exfoliate Your Skin for a Radiant Glow
Also known as chemexfoliation, a chemical peel uses chemical solutions to remove damaged layers of skin to improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and more. Basically, your skin sheds a layer during a chemical peel, making it possible for a newer, healthier-looking layer of skin to take its place. There’s no such thing as a “one-size-fits-all” chemical peel – your age, skin tone, and skin condition will determine the level of recommended intensity. A chemical peel typically takes less than an hour. Many patients have reported a burning or tingling sensation during treatment, but this will vary based on the type of peel and your skin’s sensitivity. You may see peeling while your skin is healing for about 3-10 days after treatment.
What a Microdermabrasion Treatment Can Do for Your Skin
A microdermabrasion treatment involves using a minimally abrasive instrument to remove your skin’s upper dead skin layers while stimulating the formation of new skin cells. The procedure is quick and may be combined with other types of facial treatments. After a series of microdermabrasion treatments, many patients have seen a softening of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, while also noting a significant reduction in clogged skin pores. The number of treatments required will be dependent upon your skin condition and your desired results. Many patients experience minimal discomfort or downtime. After treatment, your skin may look and feel similar to a minor sunburn. However, this usually resolves itself within a few days.
Ultrasound Facials Help Reduce Wrinkles, Fine Lines, and More
Utilizing sound wave technology to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin, ultrasound facials promote cellular renewal and repair, toning muscles, increasing blood circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage, combating puffiness and swelling and improving skin care product penetration.
